"The Politics of Cowboys and Gun-Slingers" from:

This article is about how Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad compared America to a cowboy. When the United States has legal issues, it goes to it's guns. More specifically, the Iran president was referring to nuclear weapons. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stated Iran will not back yield to a threat of nuclear bombings from the United States any longer. Some American politicians believe that America is still on a frontier to this day, conquering land across the globe. I think this matters to the world because one nation in the middle-east is standing their ground against American military threats and Iran is not the only nation being bullied by the United States. And this resistance could set off a chain reaction against America, resisting them and not giving into their demands even after nuclear bombing threats. A good example of numerous bombing threats from the U.S. to foreign nations would be the Cold War era (1947-1991). A revolt against the United States could make matters worse across the world for America. Resulting in trades being cut off with America from foreign nations, Political struggles, or possibly war.
